West Oxfordshire's favourite summer fête is back!

On Saturday 10th June, the Ramsden Summer fête will, once again, provide a fun-packed day for the whole family, including our famous dog show.
For the children there's a fairground, water slide and two bouncy castles. Games for young and old to enjoy include tug-of-war and egg-throwing.

Browse the craft stalls and food tents whilst enjoying a bottle of local beer or Pimms. And of course, a traditional, English summer fête wouldn't be complete without a Maypole and Morris dancing. 

If that all sounds too much, just sit back and relax whilst the Yarnton Brass Band provides the soundtrack to a fantastic day out in the heart of the Cotswolds!
